The Indian Health Service is divided nationally into 12 regions which are referred to as "Areas". If you are unfamiliar with the geography covered by each area, or would like to learn more about the various demographics and programs visit The Area Office Menu Page. Each Area Office directs the programs located in the geographic area it serves. Likewise, each area has a Chief Optometrist or other individual who oversees the optometric programs within his or her area. A list of these individuals follows.
